Our first meet of the year was a great way to start the year.  We really don't keep score at this meet, however, they were posting the scores of the meet as if they were.  We were a point and a half behind a team from Peoria for second place.  What a fun finish!  This meet can be confusing for some as they allow us to convert times from the Short Course Season.  These conversions can be frustrating for some, but then when the final numbers come and Age Group...
